Parameter VB text file

P: n/a
Hello

I am wanting raw VB code (text) to be a parameter file read and loaded into
an executeable (compiled from VB). I am wanting to do this so within the
executeable, I can run the VB code (interpretive) to populate variables that
are used within the executeable. I could use XML but then I would have to
create an XML file that is parsed and read into variables rather than the
easier option of writing straight forward VB code that is simply run.

Can anyone help ?

Cheers
Phil

Instead of doing it that way, you could allow the user to extend your
application using plugins. A simple sample can be found here:
